The Latest Student Successes!

18 Feb

As those who’ve submitted will know, this year’s anthology of new writing at UoG – Compass – is now closed to submissions.  The editorial team is using this conveniently timed activity week to avidly read through all your wonderful submissions – of which there were over 100 in total, which is truly amazing.  Those who missed the deadline, fear not – there are plenty of other publishing opportunites out there, and you can take inspiration from fellow students who are continuing to make a name for themselves – check out the good news below.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFirst up, a couple of familiar names.  Thanks in part to the support and votes of the UoG cohort, BA student Phil Bowne has won the ‘Story of the Month’ contest at Bartleby Snopes, which means his story, ‘Forget-Me-Not’ will be appearing in their annual print issue.  So many thanks to all who voted – that’s Team UoG in action for you.  Furthermore, Phil has placed a new story with the Atticus Review – so watch this space for details on that.  Atticus Review has been very supportive of our students, as this month they have also published Matt Paul’s new story, the intriguingly and wonderfully titled ‘Pigs is Pigs,’ which is available to read online here.
